Wide awake hand surgery is a surgical method used for treating many hand conditions. As the name indicates, patients do not receive anesthesia for the procedure and are awake while the surgery is being done. The surgeon instead injects a local anesthesia into the hand, similar to a dentist or dermatologist anesthetizing a specific area before performing the required procedure.

Orthopedic Surgeon Jeffrey A. Baker, MD, of Carolina Spine and Hand Center offers wide awake hand surgery for a variety of conditions including:

• Carpal Tunnel

• Trigger Finger

• Ganglion Cysts

• De Quervain’s Tendinosis

• Dupuytren’s Disease

• Finger Joint Replacement

• Tendon Repair and Transfer

• Arthritis
